The battlefields of the 31st century are commanded by the BattleMech, twelve-meter-tall, 100-ton bipedal engines of destruction. Fought by MechWarriors, commanded by neo-feudal officers, owned by national governments and band of mercenaries, loyal to one of the interstellar Successor States or the martial Clans, these ’Mechs make every other ground combat vehicle obsolete.
This is the warfare of fusion-powered giants.
This is BattleTech.
The Chaos Irregulars are mercenaries, born on the battlefields of the planet Acamar at the dawn of the Word of Blake’s horrific Jihad. Orphans of shattered mercenary battalions, they were forged in the crucible of combat into one of the most reliable mercenary battalions in the Inner Sphere.
Chaos Formed: Book Two of the Chaos Irregulars continues the fan-favorite mercenary band’s contracts, battling intrigue, betrayal and other BattleMech mercenaries. First published on the BattleCorps fiction site, these stories comprise the second half of a duology that began in Chaos Born: Book One of the Chaos Irregulars.

But Castor isn’t at all what he appears to be—and before he’s done he’s going to turn the entire concept of privacy on its head.

It is 3071, and holy Jihad rages in the Inner Sphere. Safe on worlds claimed two decades earlier, Clan Jade Falcon watches its enemies tear themselves apart. But a new threat is bearing down on the Falcons. Clan Ice Hellion, another of Kerensky’s Clans, has traveled the winding Exodus Road to attack its warrior brethren–for while the Clans hunger to conquer the Inner Sphere, they are warriors–and they have little qualm warring amongst themselves for advantage.
Khan Connor Rood of the Ice Hellions knows his Clan is taking a desperate risk. Victory over the Jade Falcons will give the Hellions a place in the Inner Sphere, new worlds to conquer and exploit.

Can Rood and his Hellions defeat the forewarned Falcons? With Jihad raging in front of them and genocidal wars of reaving consuming the Clan homeworlds behind them, can the Hellions survive?
